How can I get a dagger as the footnote symbol for the author field, not increment the counter, and start off at one with arabic characters from then on?

  • Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – jub0bs Dec 17 '13 at 13:22

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{footmisc}
\DefineFNsymbols{mySymbols}{{\ensuremath\dagger}{\ensuremath\ddagger}\S\P
   *{**}{\ensuremath{\dagger\dagger}}{\ensuremath{\ddagger\ddagger}}}
\setfnsymbol{mySymbols}

\begin{document}
\author{foo\thanks{bar}\thanks{a}\thanks{b}\thanks{B}\thanks{d}\thanks{a}\thanks{a}
}
\title{baz} 
\maketitle

\end{document}
